Yes I would be intrested to know which tire covers to use since our RV will be stored outside in the North Dakota winter. Most reviews I've read keep me from purchasing since the reviews say become brittle in the cold.

IF, you are going to cover them and not be uncovering them until non-freezing weather, it should make no difference, cover them and forget them.

The climate I am at is extreme hot summers 90 to 100, a few weeks of 100+ (like this week), mostly sunny days, winter has very little rain, this is also a very dusty climate. So getting a tire covers may not be an option for me if you can't keep dust off of it, I would have to clean it everyday.

ADCO makes a good tire cover , lasts more than 5 years (Texas sun mostly) and is sold by just about every RV dealer on the planet, but of you prefer: www.campingworld.com

They were ADCO covers that fell apart that January. They were so brittle from the cold they just cracked to pieces taking them off.

My Adco covers lasted about a year and a half and started to fall apart.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

The white plastic commercial covers become extremely brittle in winter and removing my 6 month old covers in January prior to departure for warmer climates ruined them.
So should I get a box of these?

I just got some designer Tyre Gards at Campingworld cost $81.00, Tire cost $1200+, I think I can afford these for a few years of replacing covers over buying new tires.
